Chairman of Israeli TV channel denounced for ‘racist’ comments against Shas

A firestorm of protest, including a threat by Shas to cease voting with the government in the Knesset, erupted on Tuesday after Rami Sadan, the new chairman of Channel 10, was accused of making racist and disparaging comments about Mizrahi Jews.

Sadan’s comments were allegedly made during a directors meeting of Channel 10 held several days ago.

“Let’s admit the truth, I, like you, am in the elite, hate the Shas movement and the thief [Shas chairman and Interior Minister] Arye Deri. But we, as the elite, need to expand the channel’s circles, and appeal to Shas’s audience, to Massuda from Sderot,” Haaretz quoted Sadan as saying.
